    Ragi Idiyappam

    I love love love idiyappam..We make this rice idiyappam often. But this is the first time i tried ragi idiyappam and it was a super hit. I was a kind of scared to try ragi idiyappam because i thought that it would go gum like. But it didn't end up like that..It was Healthy and yummy that is the only thing i can say.

    I think roasting ragi makes it non sticky. It also takes away the raw smell from the ragi flour. Adding a little rice flour helps the ragi bind together and makes it more soft.

    I served it with coconut chutney and the chutney recipe is given with this post. This chutney has a little more chillies and tamarind which goes well with this bland ragi idiyappam. So give this a try and let me know how it turns out.

      Hi Aarthi,

      Nice recipes, I follow ur blog closely. I tried both ragi n wheat flour idiyappams, Iam having hard time pressing through the idiyappam press. I am not sure whats the mistake i am doing. Are you able to press easily using the press? Please let me know how to make pressing easy.
      Keep up the great job

      Thanks

      @Su There may be two reason.

      1)Your press may be the problem, the press which i am using will work like a charm.

      2)The dough you are making is too stiff, you have to make a soft dough

      Thank you for this recipe Aarthi. I tried the ragi idiyappams and they have come out great. I will be making some coconut based veg kurma to go with it and dinner done! I am excited because I like to rotate grains to ensure my family gets good nutrition. This is an exciting way of using up my ragi flour. Thank you again 🙂 Will surely bookmark this for future use.
